“Since problems don’t exist in the euphoric world she envisions, my life will never measure up because it will always be problematic.”
Heather Reiner isn’t your typical teenager. With abilities reaching far beyond the norm, she’s just beginning to discover the possibilities.
Growing up different from her peers hasn’t been easy. From being ridiculed by classmates to her mother’s unwillingness to accept anything paranormal, life’s been rather difficult.
At an attempt to escape their past, her mother moves them to another state. Heather soon realizes though, you can’t run from a problem that begins inside yourself.
A guy from her new school, Barry, is captivated the first time he sees her. Determined to know her better, he soon learns her layers of complication run deep. With persistence, he chips away at her shield until each protective layer starts unveiling itself.
Heather wants a chance at an ordinary life, one where her abilities remain hidden. But secrets never stay hidden forever. They have a way of surfacing, revealing themselves when you least expect. Is normalcy obtainable, or will the mystery about herself be discovered? And if discovered, will Barry be like everyone else and turn away?
Buy Visions here:
Visions was exactly the kind of story I enjoy . Heather sees visions and in the beginning she believes that its messing up her ability to have a normal relationship with people. When she moves to another town and starts to make real friendships, her visions start up again. Heather sees visions of a young boy who went missing years ago. There’s no running from it because she lives in the house that he once lived in ! Then she finds out that her friend knew him and decides to use her gift to help. I won’t say anymore because that will sell out the rest of the story and I promised no more spoilers. In any case, the beginning of the book leaves an eerie feeling and the constant suspense had me on the edge of the couch…literally. There’s a little romance, character shifts, details that I’d consider to be thrilling, plenty of suspense and mystery . Someone get this author an award !
I think so far , this is the only book that I reviewed that didn’t bore me at any part. However, I know there has to be another part. The ending couldn’t have possibly been just that. That’s a cliffhanger! I’ll be looking out for part two.
